A Close-Knit Alumni Network
The Washington University - Fudan University EMBA program promotes a relational culture among its students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The small size of the Olin Business School allows for a deeper level of interaction and participation, which in turn, foster key relationships that provide endless opportunities for your continuous achievement.
You will be part of a diverse and carefully curated team that serves as a learning laboratory and second family. Building connections as second nature shapes you to be a bridge builder who brings people together in meaningful and innovative ways at work.
The program enjoys a high referral rate from the alumni network every year. You can leverage not only the EMBA alumni coming from the best multinational companies, but also the alumni community from both Olin Business School and Fudan School of Management. These connections can help you develop a more collaborative approach to leadership, address high-priority business challenges, hire exceptional talent, and build your competitive edge.
Create a Lifelong Learning Community
Our admission process is rigorous, but once you are accepted and enrolled into the program, you become part of a continuing academic support system.
We are committed to expand lifelong learning opportunities for our alumni, enabling them to continuously refresh their knowledge and leadership through the benefit platform that we co-own with our alums.
Expend the opportunity for lifelong learning
As alumni, you are entitled to take courses from both the Olin EMBA program and the Fudan EMBA program (on a seats-available basis) at any time of the year at a special alumni rate of RMB 1,500 per course. You are also encouraged to take this opportunity to acquaint yourself with the on-going class members and expand your alumni network.
Welcome back to Saint Louis-“Leadership Week” with Olin EMBA Class
We will reserve 5 seats in each St. Louis Leadership Residency for Shanghai alumni. The St. Louis Leadership Residency is a week-long, “deep dive” into leadership development that combines material that you covered in the Leadership and Managing Power and Influence courses. The residency is co-taught twice each year for each St. Louis EMBA class by Prof. Stuart Bunderson and Prof. Lee Konczak, and includes evening speakers and activities. Shanghai alumni will not be charged tuition for attending a Leadership Residency, but will be responsible for logistics, which is about USD2, 250.
The Leadership Perspective Series
We will organize quarterly seminars that feature speakers and/or panels – often drawn from our distinguished alumni – to address contemporary business issues. These seminars will provide a wonderful opportunity for you to refresh your skills, reconnect with other alumni, and invite colleagues to join yu for simulating discussions.
